Welcome to Forever Pontiac
We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).
We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.
We look forward to seeing you around!

IT is a great pleasure to be a "newbie" on this site as I am a long-time Pontiac enthusiast!
My first ownership began back in 1976 when as a High School Senior, I purchased a '64 LeMans from my neighbors. Not a GTO by any means (flat 6, standard brakes), it still started me on my Pontiac journey- which included:
1984 T-1000, 1986 Sunbird, 1988 Firebird (V6), 1996 Grand Prix GT, 2004 GTO (my buddy Mike and I were early adopters of the Monaro/GTO and Pontiac Performance Magazine actually did a photo story on us called "Blood Brothers" as we lived several houses apart),
current ride: 2002 Firebird. Sunset Orange Metallic. Apparently, it was one of the last couple of hundred produced and I thoroughly enjoy it! Although I drive a german performance sedan during the work week, I intend to keep my 'Bird for a long long long time! I never had a car with T-tops before this one and I love opening it up and cruising alongside the beach on FL A-1-A, going to the local "Cars & Coffee" once a month.
Hello fellow Pontiac enthusiasts,
I am here to seek guidance and counsel. I recently had my front suspension break on me. More specifically, the lower shock mount broke free from the front passenger lower A-arm (I think it's the A-arm). Where the lower shock mount is supposed to bolt on, I no longer have those two holes. The metal broke right there, and I do not have one of those holes for the shock to mount to.
So here is my conundrum. I am thinking about upgrading my suspension, but I am not sure what to do first or where to begin looking. Currently, I am pretty sure I have the original setup--suspension, drum brakes, 14" PMD 5-star rims/tires. I would like to do any upgrading on somewhat of a budget, as my wife told me "You don't HAVE any money to do this!" But we will see....
I have read somewhere before that some people have swapped in a Corvette suspension/brake/hub setup. Is that even possible? If so, how easy is that? If not a Corvette setup, what would be a direct swap? I am looking for something that is relatively easy to do, as well as relatively easy on the bank account. (see above WIFE comment).
So that all are aware of what car I currently have.... I own a 1967 Pontiac Tempest Custom 4-door hardtop. It has a relatively new Pontiac 400ci V8, and a rebuilt TH350 transmission. The engine has been completely redone, as well. Bored out, all new internals, heads redone, it is NICE!!! The rest of the car, however, is mostly original. And of course, those are the parts I have to work on or fix up. Case in point, the suspension issue of which I am now typing about here on ForeverPontiac. I will soon be adding a few photos of my car. But for now, I simply ask for HELP!
I welcome information from any and all folks willing to dole out the advice. In advance, THANK YOU.

im looking into buying some ws6 snowflake 15x8 wheels for my 84 grand prix. there is a complany that widens wheels and im going to have them at 2" to the width. 1' outside 1' inside so they will be a 10" wide wheel with 5.5" backspace. i have a 600 horsepower stroked 400 and i want to know if i can trust these wheels to handle the torque when i launch on the strip. the company stands behind their welding and machining so it could care less if their modifications break. i just want to be safe to know that 40 yr old cast aluminum will stay together.
